We used Norma Moutal as our officiant. We know of her through a close friend whose wedding she officiated. Our wedding was non-denominational wedding. I am Jewish and my husband is Catholic. She was very detailed and thorough. She met with us initially via FaceTime to ask us questions and get to know us. After we chose her, she sent us a questionnaire with many questions for my husband and me to answer separately and submit to her to help her write the ceremony. She was on point! It highlighted all the important things about us, our relationship, and our plans for the future. She gave us suggestions of other rituals to include in our ceremony because we were doing the breaking of the glass for the Jewish side. We included a Unity Candle and also a keepsake box, and two readings. The ceremony was appropriate length where all the important things were included, but was not too long and drawn out. Her delivery was excellent. She was absolutely perfect for our wedding, and we are so glad she was a part of our special day!

We had a big task ahead of us…organizing a wedding in less than 6 months! We scoured the wedding sites for great reviews and over and over again One Heart was top-rated. When we met Mark, we knew why. His calming demeanor and professionalism helped guide us during this whirlwind time. We met in person and just talked — about us, about our cat, something about football that I tuned out — what it was was natural and easy. Over the course of several weeks we continued our conversations, we talked some more, filled out a questionnaire and then Mark got to work on his personalized ceremony. He took into consideration everything – things we didn’t even consider – like the sensitivity of two faiths coming together and two cultures needing to find balance. He found that beautiful space within. The end result was a thoughtful and inspiring ceremony that joined our family and friends in the most compelling way. It was truly special to work with Mark and we highly recommend his services to any couple tying the knot!

We loved Norma from the start. She truly took time to learn who we are as a couple and crafted a beautiful and personalized speech for our wedding. We got so many compliments after the wedding on such a great officiant. She was professional and kind and that’s all we could ask for. We’re thrilled with how everything worked out.

My wife and I were very impressed with the ceremony Reverend Mark created for us. We wanted something non-denominational, with a touch of spirituality, touching on both of our cultures and faiths, while including personal anecdotes and sayings. Reverend Mark, was extremely thorough, very kind and a very good listener. Reflective of this, we had several guests post ceremony, ask if we had a personal relationship with our officiant pre-wedding, as he conveyed our life story and connected with both us and the guests in a great fashion. My wife’s father also commented on how Reverend Mark included such detail and life stories that he took some of his speech material. We found him to be very attentive and put our needs first, listening and creating a ceremony we will cherish for a lifetime. It was a true pleasure working with you Mark.

Norma was amazing. She wrote us a completely personal, unique ceremony that was everything that we wanted it to be. She really got to know us during the planning phase, and the questionnaires she had us fill out was so thoughtful and really made us stop and think about what we wanted. We got so many compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was and how great Norma was. Thank you Norma!

Had Such a Great Experience!

Me and my Husband were in the search for an officiant who would give us a fun, sentimental and memorable ceremony and we found just that with Norma. From the very beginning Norma was attentive, responsive and easy to work with. She listened to who were were as people and made sure she put all of that and more into our ceremony. Norma was very kind and dealt with my MANY questions I had through out the whole process without a blink of an eye. She was there for us the day of with all of our nerves and jitters and managed to keep us calm and make us smile. She eased through the ceremony like a pro and even made due with the poor lighting she was given as our ceremony was outside and got dark quick. Thank you Norma for giving us such a wonderful experience that we will carry with us for a lifetime.

MARK! What an incredible experience! From the initial meeting to the day of reading, you truly outdid yourself. I cried from start to finish, with our first reading and day of; he was able to capture the intimate moments while engaging our guests in our life story. I could not speak more highly of Mark and his services. He takes his time to really get to know the couple and crafts a ceremony entirely custom to you. You will NOT be disappointed with One Heart Ceremonies, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Mark and Norma!

Norma was amazing. She was the officiant of a friend’s wedding, and I fell in love with her warmth and ceremony and hired her for my wedding. This was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding. Thank you Norma for everything!!!

Norma Moutal has been the most important person in two of my children’s wedding ceremonies and welcomed and blessed our two grand daughters. She guided each couple though their pre marriage “jitters” and was monumental in helping them overcome any difficulties in their decision making. She wrote unbelievably gorgeous ceremonies, one for a Jewish ceremony, and one for a non denominational ceremony. She showed compassion and understanding when broaching the deaths of our loved ones, and included thoughts of them in the ceremonies. Norma also blessed both of our granddaughters in their naming ceremonies. She is a fabulous writer, an eloquent and meticulous speaker, and a wonderful and caring person. I would gladly recommend Norma Moutal and One Heart Ceremonies for any couple’s marriage or any other ceremony that one may need. We were blessed when we worked with such a consummate professional.

Dear Mark,

How do we begin to thank you for giving us the most perfect wedding ceremony and for making it truly ours? It was incredibly warm and appropriate and even more than we could have hoped for. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and to convey to our friends and families all the reasons why we are so great together and what is important to us as a couple. We will always hold you and the advice that you gave us close to our hearts.

Dear Norma,

We want you to know just how much it meant to us to have you as part of our celebration. You made our wedding day more special than we ever could have truly imagined. Thank you for listening intently to our wants and needs. You truly recognized and honored our love for one another. By doing so you created a ceremony that not only touched our hearts but those of our guests as well.

Our wedding was 6 months ago and we are still getting compliments on how touching and warm the ceremony was.

Love and best wishes,

Dear Mark,

We cannot ever begin to thank you enough for performing our wedding ceremony. You tastefully incorporated both of our traditions in a way that was meaningful for everyone. We appreciate all you did for us. We are so privileged and honored that you were a vital part of our beautiful ceremony.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Dear Norma,

Barry and I loved our ceremony. You wrote and conducted a beautiful ceremony that reflected both of our cultures and spiritual beliefs and it resonated with our families and friends. The service easily incorporated our sons and through the combination of prayers, vows and statements about us you capture us as a couple. We were all very nervous and you put us at ease. Even when the microphone failed, you remained calm and continued the ceremony with grace… We will always remember our talks before the wedding when you became an immediate confidant. You made our ceremony a reality and something we will always remember with love and pride. Thank you.
